US per capita consumption of domestic wild Alaska pollock and imported pollock leapt 38 percent to 0.988 pounds per person in 2019, a level not seen since 2016, the Association of Genuine Alaska Pollock Producers (GAPP) said Monday.

The group's calculations are unofficial. The US government releases official annual per capita consumption figures at the end of each year for the year prior, meaning 2019 figures will not be released until later this year.

The consumption of domestically produced wild Alaska pollock accounted for 59 percent of all pollock consumed by Americans, GAPP claimed.
